Studies have shown that illegal immigration is costing the taxpayers of the US $113 Billion annually.
In 1965, the number of illegal immigrants apprehended by the Border Patrol coming across the border was 110,000. Now that number is more than one million every year. In recent years most of the apprehensions by the Border Patrol was along the U.S./Mexico border fence. However, the number understates the amount of illegal entries. For our security and safety, it is imperative we secure our national borders and prosecute those who violate immigration laws. Amnesty for those breaking our immigration laws is not the answer. To secure the American Dream, a person must be willing to utilize all legal channels to enjoy the blessings of citizenship and freedom in the United States.
